Episode #8498 ~ Zende attempts to right the wrong he made with Carter. Zoe has a giant revelation on how to regain her happiness.
Provided By SuzanneThomas: I can't believe vinny is gone.
Hope: I'm so sorry, thomas. When I know that you two had been growing apart, but you were best friends for so many years.
Thomas: Yeah. We were-- we were in little league together. Went to high school with each other. We were inseparable. And I just had to identify his body. Someone killed him, hope. Someone ran him over and then left him there to die.
Liam: You did it again. You just--you just lied again.
Bill: The less wyatt knows, the better for all of us, including wyatt.
Liam: Oh, who are you kidding? He walked out of here knowing something was wrong and not for the reasons you gave.
Bill: Yes, because of the pathetic way you were acting. Now I know you're struggling, liam, but you have--
Liam: Dad, you are delusional if you think you're gonna single-handedly cover this up.
Bill: We're in it now, liam. It is what it is and you have got to pull yourself together.
Liam: Oh, yeah. No, you're right. No, just pull myself together. I killed a guy but, you know, pull myself together.
Quinn: So, did paris fill in the details about her romantic evening with zende?
Zoe: Yeah. She said, uh, zende really went all out. I'm talking champagne, flowers, french music. Sounded very romantic.
Zoe: Well, that is until her stomach started howling.
Quinn: So I guess that digestive concoction really did the trick for you.
Zoe: Yeah. I, um, I thought so. Turns out zende wasn't as turned off as I thought he'd be. He, uh, he sent a selfie of the two of them with all these hearts around them, saying "until next time."
Zoe: Honestly, quinn. I kind of feel really icky and guilty about the whole thing. I feel like I should be a lot more supportive with paris.
Paris: Did I just hear my name? What's going on?
Paris: What were you talking about?
Flo: Hey. I'm going on a smoothie run. You want your usual?
Paris: Oh, no. Thank you.
Flo: Are you sure? You get one every single day.
Paris: Not anymore, I don'T. That smoothie did not agree with me. Made my stomach all crazy.
Quinn: Are you sure it was the smoothie?
Paris: Well, that was the only thing I'd eaten all day.
Zoe: Well, look, I'm sorry that your stomach grumbles ruined your date.
Paris: Yeah. Me, too. But lucky for me, zende wants a rain check.
Flo: Oh. Someone is crushing pretty hard.
Paris: Maybe just a little bit.
Flo: Uh-huh. [ Laughs ] Well, good for you. Zende's a total catch.
Zende: You were lifting some pretty heavy weight up there.
Carter: Whatever I can to stay in shape.
Zende: Look, I know that I'm not your favorite person. But I really do appreciate you're not completely icing me out. What went down with zoe and it was not cool on my part. Even though we didn't do anything, it was wrong. And I'm sorry.
Thomas: I never thought I'd have to identify a body. I mean, when--when finn called me, I was so-- so freaked out. But to find out that it was vinny, I was mad at him for rigging steffy's paternity test but I didn't want anything bad to happen to him.
Hope: No. Of course not.
Thomas: And now he's gone. He's dead because of some heartless animal.
Liam: I feel like a monster.
Bill: You're not a monster.
Liam: No, I wouldn't be a monster if we treated this like the accident it was.
Bill: That wasn't an option, liam. And what--what do you think would happen if we called the police? You just would have kind of, hmm, explain what way would happen and they would've-- they would've just let you off easy? No. There was a bad history between you and vinny. Cops look to make arrest. Prosecutors look for convictions. If one plus one equals two and they're arithmetic, they slap the cuffs on you and it's off to prison. Hi sabrina!
Flo: Well, I think that you and zende make an adorable couple. What do you think, zoe?
Zoe: I agree. They make a great couple.
Paris: You really mean that?
Zoe: It's the truth. Swear.
Paris: It's really nice to hear coming from my sister. I actually need to go find zende. Work stuff for the foundation.
Flo: Uh, well, I have to get going too. But don't worry. I'm not gonna buy us anymore of those smoothies.
Paris: Lord. Please don'T.
Quinn: Did you mean what you said?
Zoe: Yeah. I feel awful about what I did to paris. I mean, spiking her smoothie. Seriously? What was I thinking?
Quinn: You're just having a little fun at your sister's expense. Oh, come on. Don't beat yourself up. Paris is none the worse for wear.
Zoe: Yeah. But it was mean-spirited. And I'm the older sister. I'm--I'm supposed to be the mature one. Hurting paris, that doesn't feel good. Look, I just-- I want her to be happy.
Quinn: And what about you?
Zoe: I just wanna be happy, too.
Zende: Zoe misses you, carter. I know that for a fact.
Carter: I miss her, too. So what? After what she did behind my back, throwing herself at you while engaged to me is--I--I can't let my guard down again.
Zende: Give her another chance. Let her prove herself to you.
Thomas: A hit-and-run in bel air, of all places. I never imagined that that would be a way that vinny would go out. One minute he's here. And the next he's gone. His parents are gonna be devastated. His girlfriend is gonna be heartbroken. Anyone who's ever loved him...
Hope: They'll probably have a lot of questions.
Thomas: I wish I had some answers.
Hope: I mean, what kind of person does that, just drives away and doesn't even call the cops?
Thomas: Maybe they were drunk. Whoever it was is a sick individual. Leaving a scene of an accident like that?
Hope: That's assuming it was an accident.
Thomas: What does that mean?
Hope: Well, I mean, I don't know. It might have been random but I keep thinking about what you said. About how vinny had these shady interactions and, I mean, do you think it's possible that the person who killed vinny knew him?
Liam: Every time I close my eyes, I see vinny's face and it is going to haunt me.
Bill: You got to be strong, liam. You got to dig deep.
Liam: I watched the life go right out of him. I saw him take his last breath.
Bill: Vinny is dead because vinny stepped in front of the car. We have been over this a thousand times.
Liam: Yeah. I know we have and you expect me to just go on with my life like nothing ever happened. Do you expect hope to buy this? Do you think she doesn't know me? Do you think she's not gonna know something is wrong?
Bill: You can't let that happen. You can't tell hope. You can't tell a soul. And you certainly can't confess. You had motive. What vinny did with that paternity test.
Liam: But--but--but why would anybody assume that I want him dead when he's been arrested? He's awaiting trial. Now, who cares if he's out on bail?
Bill: We know that you didn't run vinny down on purpose. We know it was a cruel twist of fate. But you can't leave it in the hands of a--of a judge or a jury to believe that. You got to trust me, liam. There is no second guessing anymore. We're in it. There's no turning back. Depression can make the week feel like seven mondays.
Zende: Wow. Hear that?
Zende: Nothing. It's total silence. No more symphony in your stomach. That mean you're all right now?
Paris: Yes. And much, much better. Thank you.
Zende: Happy to hear it.
Paris: Yeah. I'm sorry I've ruined the night you'd planned for us.
Zende: No, you didn't ruin anything. Plus, we'll have plenty of other opportunities.
Paris: You still wanna be around me?
Zende: You kidding? I can barely get enough of you.
Paris: You're the sweetest. And that picture you sent of the two of us with the hearts around it, it's so cute. Oh, and guess what? We may possibly have a new supporter. A big one.
Zende: Oh, yeah? Who?
Paris: My sister. Zoe is finally starting to accept the two of us together.
Zoe: You know, I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately. And I just had to admit to myself how poorly I handled everything after paris came to town.
Quinn: You had established your independence. You had created a life for yourself.
Zoe: Yeah. Okay. But I shouldn't have seen paris as a threat to any of that.
Quinn: Family dynamics are complicated at best. And then you add in all of the other extra drama you had to deal with.
Zoe: That's--that's true. But again, paris had nothing to do with any of that. You know, she's a really good person and I love my sister. I should be supportive of her and zende, regardless of what's going on with my own mess of a romantic life. You know, but I just--I--I need to stop doing these bad things and sabotaging her. It's just--it's not me, nor who I wanna be.
Quinn: That's very big of you.
Zoe: It's just the time I get honest with myself. Focus on carter. You know, I--I really miss him. And I want him back, quinn. I just hope it's not too late.
[ Birds chirping ]
Thomas: You think someone could've killed vinny on purpose?
Hope: Maybe he owed someone some money or--or upset the wrong person like a drug dealer.
Thomas: I'm not--I'm not saying it's not possible but it just never seemed like he was running from anybody or that he was in danger.
Hope: I mean, maybe he didn't wanna let on or--or maybe he-- he had no idea that someone was after him.
Thomas: I never really thought of that.
Hope: Well, the police are investigating now and I'm sure they will consider every possible option but it's not impossible that someone might have wanted vinny dead.
Liam: I never would've wanted this to happen.
Bill: Neither did I. But here we are. We can't change what we've done.
Liam: What you've done. Ditching the car, destroying evidence, that's what you did.
Bill: I was protecting you. I still am protecting you.
Liam: You know-- you know something, I could've handled this. I could've done it my way. And I'll tell you what, they would've believed me.
Bill: You don't know that. Do you know how many wrongly convicted people there are rotting in prison right now? Vinny gets out of jail. The next thing you know, he is mowed down by the same guy who put him in jail. And you think everybody is just gonna buy that that was a coincidence?
Liam: It was a coincidence.
Bill: And if they don't buy your little coincidence story even though it was the truth, are you gonna be at peace, liam? Are you gonna feel like justice was served if you are rotting in a prison cell separated from hope, separated from your children, separated from everything that you know and love? Are you gonna be okay with that? This is it. This is our new reality and you better suck it up. Now, I will do everything I can to keep you from being locked away. But there is only so much I can do if you were going to let yourself be consumed by guilt. You can't confess. I need you to tell me that you hear me, liam. That you understand what I'm saying. You can't say a freaking word to anyone. - I'm norm.
Thomas: I have to tell my dad. He always had a soft spot for vinny when we were kids.
Hope: Yeah. I'm sure word will spread quickly. I should give liam a call before he finds out some other way.
Thomas: What--what you were saying before, vinny did some illegal things and he wasn't exactly an upstanding citizen. And--and, yeah, he even ended in jail. But... he was a decent person at heart.
Hope: He may have hurt a lot of people. But he certainly didn't deserve to die. No matter what he did.
Thomas: I mean, he-- he wasn't some evil mastermind. Even with what happened with you. I mean, he thought he was doing me a favor. He's misguided as it was. I think about vinny. Vinny--vinny was a good person. Like, he--he helped his grandma every sunday. He volunteered at an animal shelter. He was a-- he was this decent person. He had all these positive qualities. I can't imagine someone deliberately trying to kill my old friend.
Bill: Say it. Tell me you understand what's happening here. What's done is done.
Liam: I can't do it.
Bill: Oh, damn it, liam.
Liam: I can't do it.
Bill: There's no bringing vinny back, which is no great loss to humanity. Now, what difference does it make? Whether you confess or not, vinny is dead. His life is over. But you have a life, son. A beautiful life. You have hope. You have those precious little girls. How will you gonna feel if you could never tuck them in at bed at night again? Look, what is this little separation is doing to you? Well, I am not letting you go down for this. You are not to blame.
[ Phone rings ]
Liam: It's hope.
Bill: Uh, well, don't answer. You're in no frame of mind to speak to her.
Liam: Yeah. I have to answer it. It could be about one of the kids.
Bill: Hang it up, liam. Call her back later.
Hope: Hi. Um, is this a good time?
Liam: What's wrong?
Hope: I don't know how to tell you this. Um, thomas and I, we just got back from the hospital morgue. And, um, thomas' friend vinny, he died. Liam? Did you hear me?
Liam: Yeah. I heard you.
Hope: Well, I was with thomas when he got the call to identify a body. And I--I went with him to support. And look, I know a lot of people don't have much sympathy for vinny, myself included. But this, this is awful.
Liam: Yeah. It's-- well, that is-- that is awful.
Hope: It was a hit-and-run in bel air. Can you believe it? Someone hit him and then just drove away. I mean, they just left him on the side of the road. I mean, who would do something like that? I just--I thought I should be the one to call you and give you the news myself. Liam? I mean, don't you have anything to say?
Liam: I'm so-- I'm so sorry, hope.
Hope: I realize it's a shock. But you sound-- are you sure there isn't else going on? I mean, you cancelled our lunch today.
Liam: It's--again, I'm--I'm sorry.
Hope: It's okay.
Liam: No, it's not. No, it's really-- it's really not.
Hope: Liam, you sound really off and I'm-- I've never heard you sound like this. Are you sure everything is all right?
